State of the art!

I am thoroughly impressed by this work of art. It is truly in a class by itself. It makes me wonder how a Macbook pro can cost almost double, when the Surface Pro clearly offers features that aren't available with the Mac. For thos who need to travel and take their "office" ith them, the Pro 3 appears to be the perfect choice.

  I look forward to getting one in the near future.

RF Antennas

I didn't see any mention of the RF Antennas.

I think RF antennas are one the modern miracles of portable technologies. (I hear if you want to get onto the AT&T network, certification (RTTE) costs $60k with an almost guarunteed first time fail.)

Think, in a modern device you have Bluetooth (2.4GHz), WiFI (2.4GHz,5GHz), LTE(800 to 1900), GNSS(1.6GHz), NFC(13.56MHz) all in this tiny package.

And they have SAR limits, radiation limits in all axes, are held in people hands or not changing their charactestic impeadance, and have a great clutter of metal around them!

What I meant to say was that I have no idea what he was doing with it, other than snack time...

The blue Ring Pops work best. I'm surprised you don't know what the Ring Pops are for! You don't get around much, do you?

Ring pops?  Really?  What is the "real" reason for wearing one?

I have to say, though, that this is a lot to put in such a small package.  Not really repairable, but very powerful.  I guess it is cheaper to just replace a unit rather than fix it.
